It's not so much saving the motor (though this is more of a concern with 1/8" shafts), but rather saving the drivetrain from sudden stress like landing a jump under throttle or going over a bump that causes the wheels to spool up for a second before catching. Stuff the would normally cause a shock in the drivetrain get's absorbed.

This system does exactly what a slipper clutch does, but the slipper and differential are all in one, compact, strong, weight-saving unit. Usually, to get both a slipper clutch and a differential you end up with a transmission, which is much bulkier and heavier (and has more rotating mass) and has much more weak points and areas that can fail. Any number of the gears in the transmission failing = loss of power. Any of the pins holding the gears failing = loss of power. Transmission case flexing resulting in gear mesh failure (and stripping of gears) = loss of power.

Any of the above failures which could occur in a transmission just simply cannot occur on a slipperential since it doesn't have those parts to fail.

You could use it in your CRT if you convert over to the CR buggy mount and center bulkhead, otherwise you might not get the pinion to mesh with the spur. In fact, I am using the CR buggy center diff unit on my CRT.

hes not going to. Just use the SPeed calculator to compensate with your gearing.

This is correct - no plans to make a spur this large. I have a 50t spur in the works now. 46t and 50t will be it for a bit - these should cover most applications well enough with the appropriate pinions.

It seems like everyone is asking will it work in this truck or this buggy. I'm not speaking for Mike here, but I think the truth is "theoretically" it should work in most 1/8 vehicles that use a converntional center diff. But I don't think its actually been installed in every vehicle on the market yet. That was the point of starting this thread. When you get one and install it, post up here with some pictures and some notes on what if anything you had to do to make it "fit" in your vehicle. There is bound to be some minor modification needed to make it fit in some vehicles and it will be a direct drop in for others. The intent of this thread was to start that database of what vehicles its been put into and what was needed to be done to make it work properly. An easy reference place for others to look.

People who have already ordered them or are ordering them soon will probably start getting them installed this week. Make sure you guys keep adding to this database of "Where does it work"


I can't decide if its more fun
to make it...
or break it...

Unfortunately not, unless you do heavy modifications to the motor mount (but even then it still might not work).
